Sat, 8:15 - 9:15 AM & 9:30 - 10:30 AM

Session 1 and 2 Focus

The Focused Outreach / Integral Mission Gateway Session is ideal for those seeking to develop the strategic mindset of a "tentmaker," realizing that everything accomplished within their profession should be done with the purpose of making Jesus Christ known.  Presenters will provide examples and real-life applications of the ways in which any Christian in the workplace might employ orality methods to reveal the Good News of Jesus Christ to a world so desperately in need of Him.

The content presented within the combined Focused Outreach and Integral Mission Gateway Sessions will also seek to answer the following essential question: "How does our message speak to the audiences we aim to reach?"

The content will be delivered in the form of brief "TED"-style talks, with each presenter sharing for 7-10 minutes, and providing time for questions/answers at the conclusion of each talk.
